Publisher's Summary

Newly revised version now read by award-winning narrator Sean Runnette! 

From birth to death, The War is all the citizens of Dystance know. As children it is drilled into their heads that war is the purpose behind all existence. 

Winter doesn't agree. She's stumbled across remnants of life the way it was before The War began, and now she longs to be as free as her ancestors. 

With help from her best friend, Cedar, and the boy she is forbidden to love, Tallow, she believes she can do it. Winter can see a life beyond the Pickets, beyond the constant hunger and the threat of death, beyond the war machine. 

Can one teenage girl and her dream of a better life really change the whole world?

SEAN GIVES THIS A UNIQUE TWIST! SURPRISE ENDING!

Well, I like how Mark rebranded this one...I see what he did...and I think I kinda know where he is gonna go with this one; Well maybe..Mark is unpredictable most times....But I like what I heard! I loved the old version too, this one took me a minute to settle into, because I had listened to the old one 3 times and was in love with the characters already, I could hear them in my head, the old way...lol I am huge Sean Runnette fan, so it just took a bit to get used to this way..and he did a great job, he gave the story a lot of heart, and humor...and he made me believe it all over again...Im really excited that Winter made it this time..and I cant wait to listen to the next one!!!

ANOTHER WINNER MR TUFO!!! I RECOMMEND!!!!

Teenage angst

Endless flirting with sophomoric sexual tension. Teenage girls might love this book - I found it insufferable.

Couldn't finish.

So Good!

I just loved this book and can't wait for the next one! Narrator was awesome, of course, and I have not read anything by Mark Tufo that I haven't liked. Zombies are still my favorite, but this is well worth the read/listen and highly recommended!

Liked the Book

I liked the story but had a hard time with the narrator as, while he was good, the main character was a girl and it's so hard to listen to something in first person from a girl's perspective in a male's voice. He also sounded grandfatherly which made it worse. I would have preferred either a women narrator or perhaps both male and female for this one. Other than that, I enjoyed the story. It was unique.

Brilliant

Worth 10 credits. I can't wait for the next one! Great story for teens to 100 year olds. Fun links to characters from the authors other series. Hunger game feel but with wonderful questions.

mark tufo and sean do it again

Sean is a wonderful narrator. The revamping of this book is awsome! Winter is a strong female character so many books lack.

Happily Surprised

I was iffy on this book because my mother recommended it. We have complete opposite taste when it comes to books. I found myself quickly hooked, and my fiancé kept giving me weird looks when I would randomly break out in hysterical laughter. It was very weird to have voice actor be a male when the main is a female, but I found myself not even noticing after the first chapter. The initial confusion about the mains gender is why I gave it a 4 star. Besides that, thumbs up for me!

Great narration...bad story

Arrg! I love this guy, he is a good author but this book sucked. I felt like it was a feminist novel, he has some serious self loathing.
